Meet The team
Eileen – scheduling coordinator/Dental Assistant
Eileen graduated from NWTC and acquired her Dental Assisting National Board of Certification in 1977, and has been at this Algoma Location ever since. She has seen many families grow and then bring their children in for dental care, which in itself is very heartwarming and rewarding. She is extremely proud to continue working in a field she feels very passionate about. And as always, looks forward to continually learning new skills, and providing excellent dental care. She remains committed to helping patients overcome obstacles like fear of dentistry, by earning their trust through gentle, compassionate care.
Eileen lives in the country with her husband Scot who keeps her life fun, educational and always interesting. Both are nature enthusiasts; enjoying fishing, hunting, gardening, hiking. They also enjoy history and traveling to historical places, especially out west.

Lisa came to Algoma Family Dentistry with 26 years of experience in the dental field. She is a 1994 graduate of NWTC. Lisa was attracted to dentistry for the opportunity to truly help people and create beautiful, healthy smiles. She has taken on a new role as the Scheduling Coordinator in the Algoma office.
Lisa enjoys spending time with family and friends, also being outdoors gardening, spending time at the cabin and snowmobiling.
McKenzie – Dental Assistant
McKenzie was born and raised in Algoma, Wisconsin. She graduated from the Dental Assistant program at NWTC. One of her favorite parts about this profession is watching the patients leave with a huge smile on their face.
When McKenzie isn’t in the office you will find her taking care of her dogs and horses. She also enjoys hunting, fishing and spending time with her family.
Melissa – Dental Assistant
I was born and raised in Door County. Graduated from the dental assistant program at MATC. My favorite part about being an assistant is getting to talk with patients and making sure they have a great experience at the dentist.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with family, going to concerts, going for motorcycle rides around Door County, and enjoying sunny summer days at the beach with friends.
Shannon – Dental Hygienist
Shannon was born and raised in Door County. She graduated from Fox Valley Technical College with an Associate Degree in Dental Hygiene.

She loves getting to know her patients while helping them with their oral health needs.
In her free time Shannon likes to be in Door County by her family, enjoying the beautiful summer months at the beach, kayaking and fishing.
